- Really strange business model. Adobe will take 9% of profits above $50,000.Mar 28, 2012
- only if the SWF is running with the browser plugin and only if the SWF use both ApplicationDomain.domainMemory and Stage3D.request3DContext
Think about Game Studios and Game Engine
- a big company have a Game Engine in C/C++ that is very performant
- a Game Studio decide to work on a game for a couple of years
- the same Game Studio can publish the game to console, etc.
- and now they also have the option to publish the game as an online SWF
Where is the business model in all that ?
- the owner of the Game Engine get paid by the licensing of the engine (could be fixed or a percentage)
- Adobe get paid 9% of any revenues (after tax) above $50K, only for the online SWF
Because Adobe get paid it guarantee that the game engine and the game itself will be supported in case of bugs on the Flash platform.Mar 28, 2012
- Zwetan, if you think there is any kind of guarantee for support or bug fixes because Adobe is paid, I think you are very mistaken.Mar 28, 2012
- I think not.
Who will pay any 9% share of revenues if Adobe stop to supports premium features ?Mar 28, 2012
- Actually Adobe could be making millions but still decide to discontinue stuff. There is no guarantee.Mar 28, 2012
